Madagascar Rosewood (Dalbergia baronli)
Origin: Island of Madagascar South East Coast of Africa
Visually, Madagascar Rosewood is stunning with it's pronounced and often random red or rust colored grains. It is very close in appearance to the coveted, more rare and extremely expensive Brazilian Rosewood, with only slight color variations.
Madagascar Rosewood is not a protected species yet, however it is becoming scarce as demand for it is strong. It is also a little lighter in weight than some other rosewood species which can account for the benitit of an additional sonic liveliness that surpasses most other tonewoods, including the coveted Brazilian Rosewood.
The tonewwod has a mellow warm and strong tone with a noticeably strong sustain.
